What sort of power increase can a 08 sport handle

Is it worth having it re-mapped / chipped

Any recommendations if it's worth it / engine can handle power increase

owd git,

Have you searched the forum ?

Its not just power increase that you can get from the re-map, if they alter the throttle map, ignition timing and VVT maps you can get a completely different drive without even altering top end power but there is more lift in the mid to low power and torque...

Have a look at this... http://www.mazda2forums.co.uk/index.php?topic=2276.0

If you have any questions....

Shaun......

owd git...

Depends what you want from the car, its like having a completly different car with the lower pull right through to the limiter, which ive had raised from the 6800 to 7400 gives me a longer pull in 3rd 90+ on a local track i take her round...

74bhp standard to 88.5bhp on the rollers with the CS intake & 2" stainless cat-back, release the 10bhp mazda locked from being the base model, 98.5bhp ( theoretical ) plus the re-flash ( most tuners say 10-12bhp ) so estimated 110.5bhp so similar to the 1.5...

Not had chance to get it on the rollers again yet, with the 15" wheels on its like a go-kart....

Similar to what Shaun says it depends on what you want to achieve but I wouldn't get hung up on peak increase given the nature of a small capacity NA engine, peak gains are never huge. Its more about under the curve and how the engine is transformed in its behavior.

Mods: K&N Panel filter. (I'm trying my best to avoid modding it honest......yeah that wont happen)

BanzaiMike...

Spot on there bud, the transformation in the driveability of the car after the first map file ( this sorted out the throttle lag and lumps in the throttle map )

The 2nd file I had altered the ignition timing, cleaner pulls and response from the engine...

3rd file altered the cam timing map, the kick i used to get at 3-3.5k still apparent but not as pronounced, pulls now from lower down 2-2.5k all the way up...

None of these files actually altered the WOT fueling which is what is tested on the dyno for peak power and torque...
